Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande premiered this Friday the video clip of their joint song “Rain On Me”, which anticipates Gaga’s next album and in which both stars dance in the rain on an apocalyptic stage.
The song, which is the second promotional single from the album “Chromatica”, is a house-pop cut accompanied by a video in which the choreography predominates and a setting between the futuristic and the post-apocalyptic that directly recalls the aesthetics of the movie “Blade Runner”.
In fact, it was directed by Mexican-born filmmaker Robert Rodríguez, collaborator of Quentin Tarantino and author of films such as “Sin City”, “Planet Terror” and “Machete”.
Gaga has always given great importance to the visual part in her recordings and on her return to pop, it seems that she will rely on the iconography associated with the world of science fiction.
The album “Chromatica” goes on sale on May 29 and the songs “Stupid Love” and “Rain On Me” with Ariana Grande are known. He will also have Gaga collaborations with Elton John and the k-pop group Blackpink.
“She shook my hand and invited me to the beautiful world of ‘Chromatica’ and together we were able to express … how beautiful and healing it is to cry! I hope it makes you feel as animated as we are,” said Ariana Grande on Twitter, where both singers crossed messages of moral support.
“Rain On Me” is a dance-pop theme, which at its base is inspired by the classic house of the 1990s and continues the trend to be inspired by sounds from past decades as Dua Lipa did this year on her acclaimed album “Future Nostalgia “
Gaga announced in March that she was postponing the release of her record work, as she planned to release it on April 10, mid-peak of the coronavirus pandemic.
During the quarantine, Gaga organized with the World Health Organization (WHO) the solidarity concert “One World: Together At Home”, in which the Rolling Stones, Maluma, Jennifer López, Paul McCartney and Stevie Wonder performed from their homes , among others, and more than $ 127 million was raised.
